Why this course?



Statecraft is about managing aspirations and abilities. Aspirations are limitless but abilities are limited. To find a balance between the two is a challenge for any leader who exercises power. Thus, strategic thinking gives us a framework in decision-making. This masterclass provides insights into the critical dimensions of governance and strategic thinking. The course provides the learners to analyze issues from a strategic perspective and formulate a long-term roadmap for large-scale issues involving nations, private institutions and public organizations. The course enables the participants to think about challenges from eclectic frameworks through experts. The participants would learn from case studies across the world how leaders have deployed strategic thinking to handle big problems and pursue grand ambitions.


VIJIGISHU was a concept drafted by Kautilya, meaning the one who aspires to victory or specifically a KING, who is a conqueror. King VIJIGISHU is placed as the central state around which the circles of influence are created by the neighbouring states. This traditional analysis of statecraft reminds us of our civilizational strategic thinking, which needs to be rejuvenated for contemporary threats and opportunities.

The purpose of VIJIGISHU-Strategic Thinking MasterClass is to ignite audiences with strategic insights of a nation. This can be portrayed through various tools of statecraft, learning from best practices of various countries (stories or narratives that the states have used) and showcasing a state's potential by opportunity and threat.
